To Waubay residents: ‘No unnecessary water usage’



Residents in the City of Waubay have been asked to restrict their water usage until further notice.

The Waubay City water tower is undergoing some routine maintenance that makes it necessary to leave the water tower empty. Because of that, Mayor Kevin Jens said the city is asking residents to conserve as much water as they possibly can.

“We just don’t want people to be out there washing their car or watering their lawn, those types of deals,” Jens said last week.

The interior of the water tower is being cleaned and re-coated by the water tower maintenance company McGuire Iron. The exterior of the water tower will be sand-blasted and repainted also. The work could take up to two weeks, according to Mayor Kevin Jens.

McGuire Iron began work on the tower Aug. 8, earlier than expected, Jens added.
